Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag 'losing patience' with Jadon Sancho after Newcastle defeat

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is growing increasingly impatient with Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

The Red Devils were played off the park by Newcastle on the weekend, losing 2-0 as they dropped from third to fifth in the Premier League table.

It was a luck-lustre performance which has seen the likes of Wout Weghorst come under scrutiny, as their Champions League hopes took a significant hit.

Jadon Sancho was left out of the starting lineup at St James' Park, and failed to make an impression off the bench.

And it looks as though the Englishman's time may be coming to an end at Old Trafford, after only arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2021.

Ten Hag losing patience with Sancho

Sancho was given a four-month break after he was left out of Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad, taking part in an individual training programme in the Netherlands.

While he also took time away from social media after a difficult start to life in Manchester, with Ten Hag stating the 23-year-old would return to the field when he was "physically" and "mentally" ready.

Since his return, however, Ten Hag has grown increasingly frustrated with Sancho, claim the Manchester Evening News.

Indeed, 18-year-old Alejandro Granacho had climbed ahead of him in the pecking order before the teenager suffered an injury. While Marcus Rashford and Antony were preferred for the Newcastle clash.

And as Ten Hag’s patience starts to wear thin, Sancho could be a part of a mass clear-out this summer, with six players expected to depart at the end of the season.

The report states that Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams, Alex Telles and Anthony Martial are all likely to leave the club. In addition, Scott McTominay has been rumoured with a switch to Newcastle.

Reports of a fractured relationship between Ten Hag and Sancho may come as a surprise after the winger changed his profile picture to himself and Ten Hag on social media, suggesting the pair were on good terms.
